After looking at Dell (DELL) and H-P's (HPQ) awful July quarter PC sales data (I, II), IDC now predicts PC shipments will be up only 0.9% in 2012. Even that forecast could prove optimistic, given the decline seen in Q2. U.S. shipments are expected to fall 3.7%, after having already fallen in 2011. IDC continues to expect double-digit notebook shipment growth in later years due to emerging markets demand, but the tablet market's rapid growth makes that far from a sure thing.

    These stocks are where love goes to die! Both companies have the same problems. They are being undercut in price by China and the PC is going the way of the dodo bird.
